When planning a wedding, the location is one of the most important decisions to be made. Some couples might already know exactly where they want to get married, having the choice in mind long before they even got engaged.
On the other hand, lots of couples might be struggling to find the perfect setting for their wedding. With so many choices on offer, it can feel a little overwhelming. Do you get married at home or abroad? Outdoors or indoors? Have a lavish affair or an intimate do? The choices are endless.
